Pandora Bay Street Turns Two!

posted on: May 20, 2017

Y’all. I never get invited to events as a blogger. So, when I saw a personal invite to Pandora Bay Streets‘ 2nd anniversary event, “Petals and Punps” in my inbox, I was taken aback.

I even called the store to find out more about the event.

Because the event called for pumps, I knew I would face a dilemma. I don’t own one pair of fashionable, yet comfortable pumps. I decided on a pair of pinky nude pumps that I bought from gojane.com more than a year ago. I wore these to a graduation service and let me tell you. My feet were on fire after a few hours in these babies. I could barely walk to my car.

Because of the pink undertone in the pumps, I knew exactly what I would wear with it: a mauve dress that was gifted to me by gojane.com. It was a match made in heaven. Though it’s slightly maternity-ish, I love how angelic this dress makes me look and feel!

I wore my hair in the same style I wore to work that day: a twisted bun. You can find the tutorial on my YouTube channel, Brittany Kyss.

When I got to the event, my anti-social ass I felt out of place. I’m what you call a social introvert. It’s very hard for me to just go up to complete strangers and strike up a conversation. I stood in the corner and after about 5 minutes of pure awkwardness, I called my boyfriend and told him to back for me asap. (In retrospect, I find that embarrassing. But when that anxiety kicks in. Girl. ) Shortly after, I was greeted by the pleasant face of Eslaine Croes, who sent me the invitation to the event. She asked me if I wanted a drink and invited me to come and stand by her and her colleagues. I was a little relieved and had to call bae back to say, “false alarm.” Oops.

After a while, I started to see the familiar faces of bloggers whom I follow on social media: Ianthia Smith, Aneka Stewart, Conesha Knowles, and Tracy-Ann Perpall. I felt more comfortable.

I found myself so comfortable, that I bought a ring. Mind you, I had no intentions of spending money, but when I looked at the catalog of their new collection, I sorta kinda couldn’t help myself. Hey, it was VAT free. The ring is rose gold and it’s called “Radiant Elegance.” You can find it here, on Pandora’s website. What I like about the Pandora Rose collection is that the metal isn’t overly pink, so it looks quite similar to yellow gold.

I not a fan of silver, and Pandora’s gold hand chain is beyond this teacher’s budget, so this was my first Pandora purchase for myself. I’m no stranger to the brand though. I’ve bought two of my best friends a charm and a ring, and last Christmas, I bought my mom a silver bracelet and a charm (pictured below).

Pandora had a raffle at the event and a lucky lady won some Pandora goodies. I was slightly jealous, but when I got home and saw the gift that Pandora gave to the bloggers, I was ever so pleased and grateful.  It’s a dazzling silver shoe charm. I gave it to my mom since I don’t have a bracelet as yet.

I’m quite happy and appreciative that Pandora Bay Street invited bloggers to this event because I feel that many (not all) brands in The Bahamas don’t see the importance of bloggers because they don’t realize how much influence we have. Five of us were there, and ALL of us posted on our social media platforms.

I do see brands in The Bahamas becoming more receptive to bloggers in the future though.

Speaking of the future, what I do know is that whenever I buy a gold Pandora bracelet, I will buy it from Pandora on Bay Street.

How I Style Dusters

posted on: April 24, 2017

It’s Monday morning, 1:53 am to be exact, and I’m legit writing about how to style a duster. Y’all I have work in the morning. I’m going to hate myself in a few hours when I literally feel like death.

I’ve been on Easter vacation for the past two weeks and, while it has certainly been a restful break, I do not want to go to work this morning.

I am simply not ready.

If you didn’t know, I’m a teacher and there are approximately 7 weeks left in the term. I just have to power through.

But on to more important things. I purchased this duster from boohoo.com months ago and I have to say that I love the damn thing. What I love most about it is how I can simply throw it over a plain outfit and make it chic.

I paired with an olive bodysuit, a pair of ripped black jeans, chunky green heels, and an olive clutch.

I’d say I look pretty put together. What say you?

New In | Olive Green Chunky Heels

posted on: April 24, 2017

I’m so happy that chunky heels are trendy right now.

I’m slightly embarrassed that at 25 years old, I cannot stand up in a pair of stilettos for more than an hour. I know it’s not a big deal because I know I’m not alone. It’s just that I remember the days when I could pop, lock and drop it (remember that song?) in stilettos for hours at a time. If I have to be a certain level of drunk to to that now. And I can’t wear heels for 2 to 5 days after such an ordeal.

These days, when I go out and those heels start rubbing my corn, it’s game over for me and I want to go home. How many hours I took to get ready (and the fact that I may have only been there for three hours) is irrelevant to me. Let’s go.

The last two pairs of heels I’ve bought all have chunky heels, and these are no different.

I got these a few months ago, so they’re sold out, but these are cute as well. And so are these. In a world full of stilettos, be a chunky heel.

Fashion Story One | It’s Friday

posted on: March 23, 2017

It’s Friday.

I’m off work.

Nobody better call me.

#mattafact, let me turn off my phone now.

I’m in a good mood.

Titties sitting right. Ass sitting better.

F*** Spanx. I got this.

I’m wearing heels for no reason.

And I don’t care if its 100 degrees outside.

I’m wearing this damn velvet dress.

Who gone check me?

LOL. I have to laugh at what I just wrote.

Hey guys! It’s been a few months since I’ve written an outfit of the day post. I wanted to come on here with something fresh and different. It gets quite boring writing a typical outfit of the day post where I simply state what I’m wearing and fit some awkward words in between so it won’t be short. Idk. I kind of hate small talk.

But I love making up stories and writing poetry, though I barely have a chance to write for fun these days. The only thing I read are essays and the only thing I write are grades. #teacherlife.

I want to make my blogs a little more interesting and engaging, so I thought to add a little sassy story to it. This isn’t the first time I’ve written a blog post like this. I wrote a similar one a few years ago about black heels. Someone complimented me in the comments. Ay!

Anyway, I hope my short story, at the very least, made you smirk.
